It occurs to me that somewhere in my 70’s I should be able to start over again for the umpty umph time, LOL. The ever changing world gives you different challenges as the days turn to black nights to migraines, to bizarre dreams and lovely light mornings to brew your coffee and drink it in a comfortable chair near a sunlit window. Another day, a newer beginning. We all have that chance so many times in our lives. It is indeed what we choose to do with our new day that makes the difference in our happiness.
Happiness You Choose it
Happiness by the way is something that we choose for ourselves. You choose it, I chose it ,our mothers choose it on many different days of our lives. But, happiness can be counted in moments, hours, days, weeks even, it all depends on how much happiness you want literally. It is always a choice that is available for all of us, and yes it can be a hard choice depending on where you are in your life relationships that you already have. You always have a choice, it is up to you and your courage to make change that is positive for you.
You are the one who makes your own choices. No one else is allowed to do that for you, or to browbeat you into something you don’t want to do. So gather up your courage and do what you want to make you happier.
A Long Overdue Call
What started my thinking today was a long overdue call from a close friend whom I have not heard from for about a year. I smiled when I heard the voice, it was heavier than it used to be, and a little angry, and a little scared, but the voice trembled with love at the same time. Sometimes you can hear that, you can even hear the heart, the heat in the words as they stammer out. It can indeed be a happy event, and that conversation really made my day I have to admit.
Ladder of Life
Now there is a tall ladder in front of me. I call it my “Ladder of Life” and it is my choice to either climb the steps to have my happiness in the sun or reject it. I am not going to reject it at all, rather take the first few rungs to explore new days in the sunshine. This is a new feeling that has lain dormant for far too long, one that I always wanted to experience but the other person had to acknowledge it or it wouldn’t work out at all. Sometimes the wait is worth it.
Respect Yourself and Others Choices
We have to wait things out sometimes and respect other peoples choices because life can be a good lesson in self respect and that of others who are in your life. Sometimes they change their minds. Everyone is here for a reason we never know what that is unless you are in agreement with someone else and you have talked about it.
Intuition and What Really Makes Sense
We all have energies, feelings that don’t seem to make sense at first. Later when you think about it what you really thought was true after all. That is your intuition speaking to you through your heart. It always pays to listen to your heart by watching someone elses actions and listening to what they say and do.
Pay Attention to Trust
It is also like trusting your dog whom you love because you have had since he was a puppy. Dogs know peoples actions and have that sixth sense as to if a friend is trustworthy or not. Think about the past, was there ever a person that your dog didn’t like? Always pay attention to your pets likes and dislikes. They can tell you things when you are not paying attention. When your dog gets up during the night and starts to bark you know something or someone is near your house, or on your property. Therefore you know to pay attention to the dog. This is the same thing pay attention to trust, with your dog, and your heart, pay attention to peoples actions and words. Wake up!
